Meet This Curly Girl

IndigenousCurls       How long have you been natural? What is Your hair type?   How was it received by family and friends? 

Kathie: I have been natural for a year and a half. My last relaxer was in August 2011. I big Chopped in October 2012. My hair is definitely in the 4 range. Whether I'm 4a, 4b, 4c, or a mix of all three, I don't know. 



But, I have some Kinky, Course hair! Getting relaxers was the 'norm' in my family. After going natural I was looked at as if I were kind of crazy, but once they saw progress, their minds were changed! 


IndigenousCurls       What Made you decide to go natural? 


Kathie: My relaxed hair was always so limp and lifeless. My hair never moved, or grew past my shoulders. I did some research on growing out my  hair and discovered the world of Natural Hair! I mostly fell in love with the versatility and decided to stop putting relaxers in my hair that summer.
